Kaleidoscopic view of the commons (over 70 essays, most 3-5 pages).

If you are looking for economic theory there is some of that here. Theoretical analysis, yes. Practical applications, yes. Suggestions for the future, yes.

Can perhaps be a bit jerky in terms of reading since it jumps from one essay and writing style to another.
